In order to gain a fundamental proficiency in a language while pursuing a major outside of the Department, students may choose to complete their Core Concentration or a minor in a language. Both programs are open to all majors and both fulfill the University Core Concentration requirements. In order to complete a Core Concentration in a language, students are placed at the appropriate level in their chosen language and are required to complete a minimum of three courses in one language with at least one course being at the 300 level (or above). Students pursuing a minor must complete the Core Concentration requirements and one additional course in the same language at the 300 level (or above). Core Concentrations are not permitted in a student’s native language.
